You see, and in one swift motion you've made it difficult to help because i am terrible with standard notation - so you're a damnsight better than me there!

You're damn close, and you're right in that it's not really a trill - a trill is repeated hammer ons and pull offs whereas this is just pick, hammer on, pull off, pick
Listening to it properly i messed up before, it's on two strings not one.

I'll have to tab something i can't do standard notation at the best of times, let alone here - i'll just to the relevant strings, G and D - middle 2.

part of the reason it works sound wise is the context so it's best to hear it together with the bent note you get first, in which case you get

Code:
G|--7-b-(9)---5-h-7-p-5----- D|------------------------7-


bend 7th fret up to the 9th for that first long bent note, then a quick hammer on and pull off between the 5th and 7th fret on the G string, then resolve to the 5th fret on the D string.

Playing it in that position will fit nicely over an Am chord.

A mordent, excuse me.

Can you really not do this in a guess and check fashion with your guitar?

Yep. And I have trouble understanding tab. Especially this hammer on and pull off stuff.

Best I can make out you're saying this:

On the G string:
Play D (7 fret)
Bend it higher to E (9fret)
Play C (5)
hammer on the D (7)
pull off on C (5) giving G (open)
On the D string
play G

That's how I understand it and I'm sure I've got it wrong. Can you put it right for me?

Not quite, there's no open strings involved, just the 5th and 7th fret - the pull off is just from the D back to C.

Also I messed up my tab, should have ended on an A note on the D string, not the G...i've fixed it now.

In terms of why it works over that Am chord, it's because that little figure walks you back down to the root note of your chord.

So maybe it finishes up a bit like this ? Just the general idea. There was no option for trills, mordents or anything much else in the software I used....

from my limited knowledge of notation yes, that's right!
